Pro-Union Protesters Yell At And Spit On Participants In A “Right To Work” Forum
http://www.mrconservative.com ^ | september 8, 2013

Posted on 09/08/2013 3:41:30 PM PDT by lowbridge

Pro-Union activists using bullhorns and spit interrupted a quiet discussion in Vancouver, Washington, about “right to work” laws that would allow prevent workers from being forced to join unions.

The meeting had been convened by the Cascade Policy Institute of Portland and the Freedom Foundation of Olympia, Washington and was held at Clark College’s Columbia Tech Center in Vancouver, Washington. As the meeting began, the pro-union protestors marched up and down outside, waving picket signs. Eventually, however, they moved inside to harass the participants more directly.

The protestors’ main tactic was to use bullhorns to shout down the meeting attendees. One of the protestors went so far as to spit on Vencent Vernuccio, a labor expert for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy and a keynote speaker.

It took police intervention to remove the protesters. Two of them were arrested for trespassing when they refused to vacate the building.

Democrat constituencies in action.

The next hot civil war will be the democrat party against everyone else.

Had he spat on me, he would have learned that spitting on someone is assault and he would have still been looking for his testicles which would have been kicked back where they were before they dropped.

I would also charge them with assault. Spit can be lethal.

The unions are finished in this country. They’re dying the slow, British union’s death, only the teachers will retain any semblance of power.

I have never understood why assault & battery charges are never filed, in addition to mandatory AIDS testing for those union thug losers, who think spitting is protected speech.
Same with bullhorns; even when "outside," how on earth can that EVER be allowed? Doesn't matter if it's a meeting of progressive dingbats, or Right-to-work conservatives, that's not civilized behavior. There's nothing difficult to understand about the irritation potential of very loud noise.
What's next? Pepper spray?

I thought spitting was considered battery. There is DNA linked to someone’s home address. That would call for a home visit to square things up. By the police, I mean.

And yet Obamacare wants to use the likes of SEIU and Planned Parenthood as “navigators” for those people who want to sign up on the state exchanges.

Can you imagine having to give your IRS 1040, your medical records, your social security number, and the rest of your life history to these scumbags?

I wouldn’t say no, I’d say “HELL No!”

I think the answer to your question might have something to do with the answer to another, namely this: do the local police belong to a union?

In this day and age of HIV and drug resistant STDs. Yeah, I'd consider bodily fluids a potential lethal weapon.

Marxists and socialists assert the anarchic concept of freedom, which permits them to violate the freedom of speech of others, but claim that their own freedom of speech being violated when they are threatened with arrest for heckling and shouting down others. Double standard.

Police and FF Unions are the two that still make sense, sometimes. Though they need to be limited to safety issues only.

In my area one nearby town kept putting off work on a repeater for the police radio system, causing an area to have no coverage due to
budget issues.” I.e. diverting funds to a specific demographic to gain support come election time.

Thanks lowbridge.

Drive-by pepper spraying would have kept the simpleminded a-holes from barging into the building. Now that they've been identified, their hall should have an unexplained fire.

Isn’t this the same crowd that screams about tolerance of other peoples’ opinions?

I think even the teachers unions are on borrowed time, also.

So do I. The left will end up eating itself as, the constituencies that it pandered to for decades, compete for ever decreasing financial resources. As reality asserts itself, they will implode. The only question is:

What will be salvageable?

No college campus should be trusted for holding any meetings. Use church halls or vfw halls etc. Colleges are leftists breeding grounds. Also, avoid any liberal voting town and choose a more conservative town otherwise you will not get justice.

I’m too old to kick ass as well as I used to but I’d pay the fine and court costs for any young conservative tough guy to do it for me.

Better than kicking ass would be to shove that bull horn up one of their asses, I’d pay to watch that.

Typical. Has there ever been someone who was “pro-union” that wasn’t a thug?
